    Screw Evergreen, top of Apex is where it's at. If it's the one in Cody you'd have a plentiful supply of wild turkeys wandering through your land, we ride past that house along there all the time.

    Our place is just over 1400sq.ft. Plenty of space for 2 adults 1 kid and dog. Were I a single man, I would not be afraid to go smaller, for the right property.

    I'm thinking along the lines of 1000sq ft of well thought-out space once we get rid of these kids...

    thats just the natural outcome of central banks pumping money to "dynamize" the economy.

    Perhaps it was a garage, originally?

    In the seventies they moved a shtload of Boise Cascades from Utah mining camps, and onto 1/10 and 2/10 acre parcels. No garages.
    We bought cheap thinking we could build a garage...but the town setback Regs quickly disabused us of that notion.
    Anything else in town that had a garage was about $300k more at the bottom of the market.

    The more pertinent question is how do they fit 6 fucking bedrooms in 2000 sq ft? :confused:

    Exactly!
    Four of them are in the 1000 ft basement, which also has a kitchenette.
    Ours is 4 BR in 2000 sq ft, and the bedrooms are still too small.
    She built it out as a skid rental...

    The supply of home for sale has jumped significantly this summer in Seattle. This has pretty much put the brakes on rising prices.

    As the job market and population is still growing I am assuming this is due to the market finally hitting the point where people are willing to sell out. Either retirees, those moving to the 'burbs or landlords looking to cash out with stagnating rent with an apartment building boom.

    I've anecdotally noticed that home prices seem to be slowing here. I mean, we're no Seattle but our house, and some others I use as a local barometer, have either slowed pretty significantly in price growth, or even started to back off a little. I don't know what the local "inventory" levels are like, but prices leveling off can only be caused by a couple things.


    Edit: A brief google from a semi-questionable, local source, says year over (june) inventory pretty much equal and values up 12%. So WTF do I know?

    There is usually a several month delay in the stats as they do not get recorded until a property closes. Local stats are still shiwing growth but hiuses currently on the market are taking weeks instead of days and you can see places with price drops, which has veen unheard of.

    Got to do something to impact prices if you want to build a gaudy tower with your name on it.
